This makes me wonder if Silverblue and containers based on ostree can also get corrupted after a failed update. Wasn't ostree invented to solve this?

I wasn't expecting to find clean OOP modeling in an emulator:
github.com/dirkwhoffmann/vAmig

The instance variables map 1-to-1 with the custom chips present on the Amiga motherboard.

But it might get messier once they add support for Amiga models with different chipsets...

The main downside with is that there's no configuration UI, and the config file is a Lua script.

I had to _actually_ rtfm just to change the font and the background color! ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Unlike PulseAudio in its early days, #โ€‹PipeWire is not breaking too many things and angering users across all distros and desktops:

Sure, some users are reporting bugs, but remember how many _years_ we spent killing the pulseaudio daemon to fix the damn sound?

Three male colleagues were talking about haircut and hair products for over ten minutes today. To the point that I got bored just overhearing them.

It was a funny but pleasant moment. Normally all they talk about is how to brew beer.
